From the registration information: Blacons (Association l’Arbre de Vie) is a large Provençal country house, situated in a three-hectare park. It is in the Drôme area, some thirty kilometres away from Valence and Montélimar. The nearby river, the beauty of the mountainous region, and the purity of the air, all combine to make it an ideal place for the practice of yoga and the attainment of clarity of mind and deep peace.
Each day comprises six to seven hours of study and practice of postures, one hour to one-and-a-half hour pranayama and three sessions of deep relaxation, all harmoniously spread out to offer pleasant moments of recuperation. In each course, we shall tackle asanas that can lead into or back to a particular posture, and examine each posture’s role in the sequence of yoga practice according to the practitioner’s level and aim. All courses will be simultaneously translated into English.
